To celebrate the end of the school year, I made cupcakes to thank my interns and program assistants, as well as for our staff lunch, where we celebrated my co-worker’s pregnancy. Someone mentioned that the mom-to-be loves funfetti cake but I haven’t used a box cake mix in several years.
Instead, I found lots of recipes online for making funfetti from scratch, and ended up doubling two recipes: this one for the cake and this one for frosting to make around 19 cupcakes. I used oblong rainbow sprinkles in the batter, which melted in the oven and made perfect little splotches of bright color inside the cupcakes.
I piped the frosting with a 1M tip and decorated it with three types of sprinkles – the oblong rainbow ones, tiny rainbow nonpareils and pastel confetti.
Which sprinkles do you like best?
